Picking out an appropriate Halloween costume can sometimes be a hefty feat as one attempts to dress in a manner that does not offend or invite negative public reactions.
38-year-old local actress Fasha Sandha recently received flak for dressing in a horned costume made to resemble Angelina Jolie’s character ‘Maleficent’ at a costume party she attended along with her children. Fasha revealed her outfit via a post on Instagram.
“Hanya suka-suka (just for fun)”, the actress wrote. It is understood that the event was organised in the neighbourhood where Fasha resides with her family, which was also attended by her neighbours.

Netizens were quick to flood the comments section saying that her choice of wear was insensitive and disparaging to religious belief despite the actress, who recently starred in the TV series Dendam Seorang Isteri explaining that the costumes at the event were not meant to be taken seriously.
Even so, many noted that the actress’ religious belief forbids her from celebrating Halloween altogether, noting that the act was an example of being influenced by Western culture.
